Biography
Ana Čigon je na ljubljanski Akademiji za likovno umetnost in oblikovanje zaključila dodiplomski študij slikarstva in podiplomski študij videa. Končala je tudi magistrski študij Interface Cultuers na Universtität für künstlerische und industrielle Gestaltung Linz v Avstriji. Prejemnica nagrade skupine OHO (2009). Deluje pretežno na področju videa, performansa in novih medijev.
V njenem video delu igrata ples in fizično naprezanje eno od osrednjih vlog. Čigon je ena redkih mlajših avtoric, ki se ukvarja specifično z žanrom plesnega videa, v katerem včasih kot profesionalna plesalka nastopa tudi sama. V svojih delih je doslej poleg raziskovanja značilnosti posameznih medijev in možnosti njihovega združevanja obravnavala predvsem družbeni položaj in vlogo žensk, kot tudi položaj sodobne umetnosti in njene prezentacije.V svojih zadnjih umetniških projektih pa se ukvarja s feminističnimi tematikami, predvsem z vprašanjem podreprezentiranosti umetnic in s pomenom problematiziranja vzorcev zgodovinjenja umetnosti.
